Don't think ''mama'' has become weak, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who lost power in the recent assembly elections, said on Sunday and claimed the BJP will win at least 27 out of the 29 Lok Sabha seats in the state.
Congress may have formed government in the state but it could fall "anytime as it lacks majority", Mr Chouhan, who is also called ''mama'' or uncle, said at ''Yuva Vijay Sankalp Maharally'' of Delhi BJP's Yuva Morcha.
"Don't think mama has become weak. I promise you that we will win at least 27 seats, as we did in 2014, out of the 29 Lok Sabha seats, in the coming elections," said the senior BJP leader.
Hitting out at Congress government in Madhya Pradesh, Mr Chouhan claimed BJP could also have formed a "lame" government too but it decided it would do so only with a grand majority.
Mr Chouhan also mocked the gathering of opposition leaders at Saturday's Kolkata rally as "bhanumati ka kunaba" (marriage of convenience), saying there was no unanimity over a common leader among the parties planning the ''mahagathbandhan''.
"It's like a wedding without a groom. On the other hand we have a leader in the form of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to lead us in the battle ground," he said.
